DEVONtechnologies has refreshed all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.8 to prepare for the coming rollout of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. In addition to updated Yosemite-friendly interface elements, the three editions of DEVONthink add a sharing extension that enables you to clip text and Web addresses with a single click (rather than using drag and drop). The DEVONthink updates also receive an improved Clip to DEVONthink extension that works from Safari’s reading list (available from the Dock and Import menu), better conversion of Markdown to rich text, a fix for autocompleting in the Tags column when running Yosemite or 10.9 Mavericks, and the capability to set images in Web views as document thumbnails. DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office get a script for Safari that adds bookmarks for all the open tabs, while DEVONthink Pro Office updates support for ScanSnap Manager to version 6.x. DEVONthink and DEVONnote also add a Share submenu to the contextual menu of Web and PDF views (requires 10.8 Mountain Lion or later). (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes; DEVONnote, $24.95 new, release notes; 25 percent discount for TidBITS members on all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. 10.7.5+)
